I think you're muting the colours too much where it becomes muddy and less vibrant. Saturate your colours a little more.
Thanks Enydimon I tried to saturate the girl with the cat and it came out looking a lot better also added a mood background
Update here is my latest head study.
it was only supposed to be gray scale but i couldn't help myself
Some animal study and color here is a cat skull
1: fantasy portrait
2: A mood painting
3: average conceptart
here are some new quick sketches
Nice Geisha, The grey and red is a real emotion amplifier.
Had a dream once of a Geisha visiting a grave to put a lotus or an orchid flower on it.
I was trespassing on sacred ground and had too keep a distance.
The concept went all exaggerated in my mind ever since.
The element of beuty and sadness together just blows my mind into pieces every time..
The idea of having lived a life entertaining someone and ended up loving someone dearly as a servant and how lost that servent is when her master has died, so she ends up serving his momory with the same beuty as before.. Rips me apart.. And the red, being ambiguous between blood(Death) and Beuty with a dash of sacredness(White).
Ever listen to some Vanessa Mae? There is a song of hers that hits that button so hard it makes everything tremor.
Maybe one day I will be able to communicate stuff with that impact.

Hey, awesome man! Keep rocking those sketches. It's looking better and better for each update. You're making me feel guilty for not sketching enough :p
Nice progress so far DK. One thing that stands out the most is having the stylized eyes. If you look at all of the portraits they seem to have all similar eyes. It seems like you are drawing more lemon shapes than actually putting the eye in the eye socket. Get what I am saying? Keep working hard
